|Über uns||We provide free courses to adults aged 19+ with few or no formal qualifications.|
Community Learning is part of Bristol City Council’s Employment, Skills and Learning Team. Our role is to help adults with few or no qualifications to gain skills and build confidence, so that they can progress to further learning opportunities or find work.
We work in targeted neighbourhoods to design accessible and responsive learning that is delivered flexibly. We focus on people who face a wide range of barriers to learning and work.
